The Beeb is to start shooting a brand new drama about a cybercop who scours the Net exposing "scams and shams online". Called Hawk and featuring ex-Citizen Smith star Robert 'Wolfie' Lindsay, the programme is named after his Web site, hawk.com. Well, that's what today's Mirror said. Except that hawk.com belongs to US-based Hawk Technologies, which provides "systems and network integration services for complex heterogeneous networks". And let's face it, that's hardly a crime now, is it -- providing systems and network integration services for complex heterogeneous networks, I mean? A spokesman for the BBC Hawk was only a working title. She knew nothing of Hawk.com. Well it's good to know that's all sorted now. But if the Beeb's new fictional cybercop wants a scam to investigate, he can start with looking into why the BBC wants to levy an extra tax to pay for its digital TV services on top of its normal terrestrial licence fee. ®
